ImPRESSED Vinyl Heat Transfer Review

Recently, we were lucky enough to receive several packs of heat transfer vinyl from ImPRESSED Vinyl.

 

They sent us this pack of HTV free of charge for us to try out, but this review is our honest opinion, and is not biased by the freebies. The HTV was not in exchange for a review, or any other mention, but we wanted to put this together so that you might know if it’s right for you!

 

ImPRESSED Vinyl HTV Review

 

 

So what did we get in our sweet little bundle from ImPressed Vinyl?

 

✔️ The 20 Pack Assorted Color HTV Bundle

✔️ The 10 Pack Black HTV Bundle

✔️ The 10 Pack White HTV Bundle

✔️ The 10 Pack Pink HTV Bundle

 

First ImPressions

 

First impressions of ImPRESSED Vinyl?

 

We’re Impressed! The packaging and presentation is really impressive!

 

The strong, colorful, protective envelopes that the vinyl arrives in are great. We’re used to the Siser HTV that we order on Amazon arriving in all sorts or ugly bags or boxes, usually unmarked, and mostly unprotected and without a good storage option.

 

ImPRESSED Vinyl wins on packaging!

 

 

When we got in touch with ImPRESSED Vinyl to thank them for sending us their product to try out, we told them the packaging was great!

 

They replied:

“One of our goals with the packaging was to provide a long term storage option for our HTV. Our document bag style packaging makes it very easy to slide the sheets of HTV in and out. It protects the sheets from bending and from light. It also gives you a place to store your scraps (HTV scraps are like gold).”

 

The other really cool thing about the packing, are the instructions displayed on the back. Check this out!

 

 

The back of the large HTV storage envelopes contain:

  • Cutting instructions
  • How to prepare your garment for heat transfer
  • Application instructions for both heat press and iron
  • Care instructions
  • Features of the product

 

No other HTV or adhesive vinyl that we’ve has come with this level of instructions.

 

Using ImPRESSED Vinyl HTV

 

The first project we made using ImPRESSED Vinyl is this Interactive Father’s Day T Shirt.

 

 

The Multicolored HTV Bundle was perfect for this project, as you can see! We used 6 different colors for this one t-shirt, and really like the selection of colors that are included.

 

 

So colorful!

 

 

Here are the colors that come in the Multicolor Bundle (12 x 10 inch HTV sheets):

 

2 black

2 white

Silver/Grey

Gold

Brown

Grass Green

Light Pink

Fuchsia

Red

Orange

Yellow

Purple

Aqua

Royal & Sky Blue

Neon Yellow

Pink & Green

 

And here is our experience using ImPRESSED Vinyl HTV.

 

Easy To Cut:

 

I used the Cricut Maker to cut this HTV, and there were no issues. As you’d expect, it cut very easily.

 

 

The HTV didn’t pull away from the carrier sheet while being cut, or anything nasty like that, it cuts perfectly with the appropriate settings.

 

 

Easy To Weed:

 

While weeding the HTV, we noticed that the carrier sheet wasn’t very sticky. This made it very easy to weed because hands don’tt get stuck to the carrier sheet all the time (as is the case with other brands).

 

It was also really easy to pull the vinyl away from the carrier sheet.

 

 

Initially, we was a little worried that the transfer  might slip around when trying to press it, due to the limited stickiness of the carrier sheet, but this didn’t happen and we had zero problems pressing it. If this had been the case, some heat resistant tape would have easily solved the problem.

 

Heat Presses Well:

 

We pressed the car track heat transfer in stages because it was so large and had many pieces. And even though we ended up pressing some parts of the design multiple times, the HTV still looked perfect, and there were no signs of shrinkage.

 

 

After using this HTV and following the simple instructions, we got the impression that this HTV is very forgiving and not easy to stuff up! Unlike Foil HTV for example… How many times have we melted that…!?

 

 

Good Looking & Feeling HTV:

 

We were pleased with the final look and feel of the applied heat transfer vinyl.

 

It is not a thick and heavy vinyl, but sits really nicely on the t-shirt. There is no real ridge if you run your finger from the cotton to the vinyl.

 

 

The vinyl is not super glossy either – we’d describe it as a low-sheen vinyl for most of the colors. However, some are almost matte (like the green on the trees in the design).

 

You can see this whole father’s day shirt project here. We also use ImPressed Vinyl in this post showing how to cut multiple colors on one cutting mat.

 

Final Thoughts On ImPRESSED Vinyl

 

We are very happy to recommend ImPRESSED Vinyl.

 

The HTV was easy to cut, weed, and apply, and after many wears and washes, the vinyl remains perfectly intact and in place.

 

After seeing how the HTV performed in this project we’re keen to try a layered HTV design with it to see how well it layers.

 

At this stage, ImPRESSED Vinyl only sells regular HTV, there doesn’t seem to be any fancy stuff like patterned HTV, or glitter HTV, for example. But we have a feeling they will expand their range in the future!

We’ll continue using this vinyl for different types of projects and update this review as necessary. Thanks for reading!
